Edwards, Woody, Dunkley presented plaques during fire department’s annual meeting
During the annual community meeting of the Watkins Volunteer Fire Department on Feb. 2, awards were presented to three department personnel.
Butch Edwards was named the 2012 Fireman of the Year while Quentin Woody was the recipient of the 2012 First Responder of the Year award. Each active member of the department voted on these awards.
The Fire Chiefs Choice award went to Justin Dunkley. The fire chief himself, Charles Forsythe, determines the individual who best suits the criteria for this recognition. The factors the chief has to consider include the person’s performance, training and the assistance given to the department during fund raising events held throughout the year.
